(using Python and the Flask Library)
An oAuth integration allows you to have an application "do stuff on your behalf".
This is a topic that can be quite complex to understand. For that reason I created this Python code to make it as easy as possible to understand.
What happens in when you run this code?
First you open the application that can only say "hello world". Click the authenticate link.
After successful authentication on the Webex platform (with or without SSO integration), you have to confirm that application XYZ is allowed to do things on your behalf.
Now the application can, on your behalf, get your details (name, email address, etc).
How does oAuth work?
Here's a single slide that I created as part of an extensive oAuth presentation. (Let me know if I should publish that presentation on Youtube!)
Details, code & setup on Github
will be posted in the Webex Developer LinkedIn Group: http://cs.co/webexdevlink

QUESTION: Should I publish my oAuth explanation videos on Youtube?
Just leave a comment.
